Description Francois-Xavier 'FiX' KOWALSKI 2005-05-22 22:45:27 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050225 Firefox/1.0.1

Description of problem:
When stopping the network (e.g. at shutdown time), ppp interfaces are shut-down after ethernet interfaces:

This causes the PPP link to be abruptly brought down -- without a termination handshake with the peer -- & hance may delay the required reconnection time when the peer xDSL router is facing high load.

In the case of PPPoE (my case), PPP interfaces should be brought down *before* Ethernet interfaces.  I do not know the sensible order for usual PPP interfcaes (e.g. over dialup).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
One of the below

1. service netzork stop
2. shutdown
3. reboot

Actual Results:  Shutdown sequence:

Shutting down interface eth0:  [  OK  ]
Shutting down interface eth1:  [  OK  ]
Shutting down interface ppp0:  [  OK  ]

Expected Results:  Shutdown sequence:

Shutting down interface ppp0:  [  OK  ]
Shutting down interface eth0:  [  OK  ]
Shutting down interface eth1:  [  OK  ]

Additional info:

2 ethernet i/f:

- eth0 serving my LAN (10 MBytes/sec switch)
- eth1 connected (x-cable) to my xDSL modem

2 PPP i/f:

- ppp0 on-demand dialup
- ppp1 PPPoE

Fedora Legacy is only doing security backports, and this doesn't seem to be one
of such.   So the issue is unsupported.

Quickly looking at more recent init.d/network, there you have:

        for i in $cipeinterfaces $xdslinterfaces $bridgeinterfaces
$vlaninterfaces; do
                eval $(fgrep "DEVICE=" ifcfg-$i)
                if [ -z "$DEVICE" ] ; then DEVICE="$i"; fi
                if ! check_device_down $DEVICE; then
                   action $"Shutting down interface $i: " ./ifdown $i boot
        # shut down all interfaces (other than loopback)
        for i in $remaining ; do

so, there's currently some provision for shutting down xDSL interfaces first,
just as long as the interface definition includes:
